At the November QASIG, we had an illuminating discussion on the fascinating world of signals-based testing. In an interview with Jon Bach, Wayne Roseberry, an expert in the field, will reveal how this innovative approach leverages engineering and operational data from your products to unearth underlying issues. Unlike traditional pass-fail checks, signals-based testing delves into longer-running, complex workloads and scenarios, focusing on identifying signs of trouble, problems, or any indicators that warrant further investigation.
Get ready to explore the following discussion topics:
Shifting the Focus: We’ll delve into how signals-based testing adopts a “this might be bad” perspective, shifting away from rigid expectations and opening a world of possibilities.
Historical Anomaly Detection: Discover the power of tracking anomalies historically and how trending data can flag deviations from established patterns.
The Role of Automation and Tooling: Wayne will share real-world examples of how automation and the right tools can bolster signals-based testing, making it an indispensable part of your testing toolkit.
Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to gain fresh insights into signals-based testing and its potential to revolutionize your testing strategies. Join us for a dynamic conversation that promises to be enlightening and practical.
